Got the bog standard X-small left handed drilling for my young son to save some money after seeing stats fit his hand nearly perfect with bowlingball.com.  Can't beat a $15 drilling and he loves it.

I have used Buddie's a number if times and they do superior work.  Give them a call.  They are very willing to explain the whole process involved.  You won't be disappointed.

I've used Buddies numerous times. Everything from drilling to customer service is top notch.  I can't give Chris and the staff enough praise.

Very happy with the drilling from Buddies on my latest ball. 1st time I ever used an online service. Think they did a better job on my thumb then my local guy usually does lol.

I echo the sentiments on Buddies. They're great and they've even helped me with stuff like finding my PAP when I was starting out when the local guy didn't want to take the time to do so. Switched to IT as well and most of the pro shops in my area don't do it (and the one that does charges like $60 for that service vs. the $33 that buddies charges)

Have experience with bowlingball.com as well. Won a ball through them once and had them drill it (I think they charged $30 or $35 with slugs & IT, very reasonable). It was accurate. I fortunately had a copy of my drill sheet so I didn't have to send them a ball. They didn't glue the inserts in which I didn't care for but I know others might like having that flexibility.
